The Old Porch House is a handsome partly timber framed country house which dates back to the16th century. Originally a hall house, it has been greatly altered and extended during its history as can be seen from the various architectural influences which converge to create this beautiful and multifaceted home.

The current owners have sympathetically restored and improved the house over the last thirty years adding an extension to the rear of the house which incorporates the fabulous kitchen/breakfast room. The kitchen is by Kenton Jones and has granite worktops and a number of integrated appliances including a Falcon range with induction hob. This thoughtfully designed modern and comfortable open plan space has oak flooring and an informal dining area, which has fitted cupboards to match the dresser. The adjoining utility room has a stone floor and door to the rear along further fitted units and a Maytag washer and a dryer.

The magnificent dining room has an impressive inglenook fireplace of exposed stone and brick. The oak floor boards and beams are particularly notable in this room, which is a fantastic space for entertaining. The drawing room is found to the front of the property and has French doors to the terrace along with two bay windows which provide a wonderful vista over the beautiful grounds. The sitting room is a lovely comfortable room with fitted shelving and cupboards, along with French doors to the terrace at the rear of the house. The cloakroom completes the ground floor accommodation.

There are three double bedrooms on the first floor, all en suite, along with a family bathroom, which has a bath and separate shower. The master bedroom has an impressive en suite bath/shower room and an adjoining dressing room/study with a number of fitted wardrobes. This room could be used as an additional bedroom if required. On the second floor there are two further interlinking bedrooms along with two attic rooms, which provide excellent storage.

The Cottage

Extended in the 1980s, The Cottage is a spacious, detached building, which is currently used as an office. It has huge potential to create a three bedroom property with some refurbishment.

The Old Porch House is a situated in the delightful and popular village of Cressage. The surrounding countryside really is quite breath taking and the area offers wonderful walking and riding pursuits.

The nearby historic market town of Much Wenlock provides a good selection of everyday facilities including a number of individual local shops, public houses and restaurants, along with a primary school and well renowned secondary school, William Brookes.

Train stations can be found at Wellington (7.6 miles), Telford and Shrewsbury whilst International airports are located in Birmingham, Manchester and Liverpool.

The Old Porch House sits within mature, beautifully landscaped grounds which extend to approximately 2.16 acres with sweeping lawns to the front and rear. The grounds comprise a variety of elements including an area of established woodland, flagstone terraces, a flourishing vegetable garden, and a number of planted borders which include spectacular rose bushes.
